Ejner Hansen

October 26, 1946 - July 2, 2012


Ejner Hansen
October 26th 1946 – July 2nd 2012

With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Ejner Hansen at his home in Duncan, B.C. Ejner was born in Vojens, Denmark on October 26, 1946. He came to Canada with his parents and two sisters in 1957.

He was predeceased by his father Jen in 2008. he is survived by his dear friend Gail and her family, his mother Johanne, daughter Kerri (Jay) Tranberg, Dana (Brian) Jackman, Shannon Hansen, Toni Hansen, Jenny (Brent) Bowden and their families, sisters Birthe (Phil) Weiten, Kirsten Wilkinson (Paul) and their families.

Ejner also leaves behind nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren and his canine companion Jackson.

At a very young age Ejner began his professional career as a welder by his father’s side at Jens Hansen Ornamental Iron, Welding and Repair. Later he went on to Duncan Iron Works, ProMac, Hayes Logging and after many years of self-employment with Hansen’s Rail and Repair he then retired to enjoy the many passions he loved.

He loved music, singing, dancing, his beautiful Rhododendrons, as well as his collector cars and his 1928 Ford Model A Hot Rod.

Ejner loved his family. He was a sensitive man with a sentimental heart; he enjoyed celebrations and holidays where everyone came together. Christmas was always a traditional gathering he enjoyed.

Ejner looked forward to the summer when the boat came out and time for camping and fishing with family and friends. He loved animals and the great outdoors . Ejner was a good friends to all, he was always there if you needed him to give a hand or lend a shoulder to cry on.

He will be missed by all the people he touched in his life.

Lift a glass and wish him well, he was here for a good time, not a long time.

A Celebration of Ejner’s life will be held on July 14, 2012 at 1:00 pm at the Cowichan Rugby Club located at 1860 Herd Rd, Duncan, B.C.
